New Eco Literacy Course

Regarding the free places, they are especially targeting individuals and organisations who are not currently doing environmental work, such as faith groups or those working in the arts or social projects. However, all community and voluntary groups in Wales can sign up for free at:

Chepstow Transport Study

Report published into Chepstow traffic and travel – Monmouthshire  – The latest report on the cross-border Chepstow Transport Study recommends a 40mph A48 single carriageway bypass including a bridge over the Wye and active travel and public transport measures to deal with increasing traffic congestion in the town.  A recent Welsh Government freeze on new road-building may prove to be a major obstacle for this much-needed  project to overcome.
